I'm totally hooked on these series. I've seen an episode here and there in the past, always enjoyed the original movie, but never really understood it. I've recently rented the first 3 seasons and I think the idea and the sotry telling is amazing. The way the writers tie in our ancient history (from the whole world) to a bigger meaning, and to universal history. Some of the themes they tackle are very apropos our present times - I esspecially like when the "more advance races" in the series say that humans are still too young.

Anyways, I just wanted to share that with you, and I encourage you to visit your local libraries after the finals are over and rent SG1! yeah :cool:

I only watched it because it had MacGyver in it. But yes - good show.... good show....

I've seen every episode and the movie, but then, I am a huge nerd. And Atlantis is very good, a welcome change from a series that was starting to get repetitive.

Holy crap, it is MacGyver! LOL, always funny when you realize two very distinct people in your mind turn out to be the same person. Like when I found out Mark Wahlberg was the ex-rapper Marky Mark.

Holy crap, it is MacGyver!

When he was stuck in Antartica with Sam, I was half expecting him to make some explosive out of his boot heels and some bleach to blast his way to the surface.

haha, me too - but then again he was baddly injured - still MacGyver woulda used his gum to patch up the stargate or something.

Strangely, I loved SG-1 alot more than I liked the movie it was based on. I agree with axon that it was pretty cool mixing world history and mythology with a sci-fi twist, and overall, the first five seasons were pretty good. As soon as the show hit the Sci-Fi channel, things went downhill quite a bit. I think I only liked maybe 2-3 episodes out of the last 2 1/2 seasons; this coming from a guy who used to watched the first 5 seasons on DVD nearly non-stop for a month(then it gets boring when you can immediately say what episode it is by the first minute).

*Whatever you do axon, stop watching it at the 6th season(when it jumped to Sci-Fi), I absolutely loved that show until it was on sci-fi and went down hill.*

Welcome! I have to agree that when SG1 moved to SCI-FI the storylines got watered down but overall it still good.

I have seen them all except for most of season six, but I think that season 7 was really good and though season 8 is a little strange and they seem to be running low on ideas it is still good. The only problem with season 8 was that they took Oneil out of the action and he was the best character.Atlantis is ok but it is basically SG-1 on a different planet and the actors aren't nearly as good.

The first several seasons I liked, but I really lost interest by about the fourth.

On the bright side, though, Dr Who will return next year!!
